Biography

Atlanta, Georgia (1995 – present)

Goodie Mob, based in Atlanta, Georgia, is widely considered one of the founding hip hop acts of the (commerically viable) Dirty South movement. Members Cee-Lo (Thomas Callaway), Khujo Goodie (Willie Knighton, Jr.), T-Mo Goodie (Robert Barnett), and Big Gipp (Cameron Gipp) make up the group, which has been functioning since 1995.

“GOODIE MOb”, as it’s written on their album covers, means the “GOOD DIE Mostly Over bullshit”. Cee-Lo notes in a song off the Soul Food album that, ” you take out one ‘O’ it stands for ‘GOD Is Every Man Of blackness.’ “

Its members were all born in Atlanta, and the group is based there with the rest of the Dungeon Family, a collective which includes OutKast, Witch Doctor and P.A. (Parental Advisory). Goodie was first heard reciting haunting politically charged poetry on several songs from OutKast’s first album Southernplayalisticadillacmuzik. His reputation as a poet, thinker and social commentator is legendary in the southern hip-hop community.

Cee-Lo was the most visible member of the group prior to his departure in 2000 due in part to his distinct voice, while Big Gipp has made several rounds on other Dungeon Family members’ albums, and T-Mo and Khujo form a duo within the group called The Lumberjacks.

    Really down on the new joint. It's pretty left field and works in some places but rarely

    The latest album is very theatrical. Not at all what I expected, but I think I still like.

    I don't really like the late era outcast that much and I honestly didn't like the album. Cee Lo sounds really annoying and the whole album sounds too random and out of place. I knew that the new album is going to sound nothing like their previous albums and I listened to it 2 times and I still dont remember anything. Anyway, to each his own I guess.

    @Yeah_Brah . this album sounds like late era outcast and dungeon family with a modern twist. im predicting pitchfork will give this a best new album cuz it has that hipster sound appeal. its surprisingly different from previous goodie mob albums and i dont mind the sound.

    @methane36 - What do "the pitchfork hipsters" have to do with Goodie Mob? Anyway, the new album is really dissapointing. It's ok by the new low southern hip-hop standards (a.k.a. 99% trash) but overall forgettable.

    New album is literally one of the worst things I've heard all year. Hard to believe it's the same dudes who made Soul Food.
